        Migrant Mother: Documenting American Life in the 1930s Through Photography

        In this media-rich lesson designed to support interdisciplinary learning in English language arts and United States history, students are introduced to documentary photography through Dorothea Lange's photograph Migrant Mother. Through the iconic photograph, students gain a deeper understanding of the conditions facing Americans during the Depression and specifically how documentary photography was used to support the change in social policy advocated by President Roosevelt through his New Deal programs.
